I'll admit it. I don't have a lot of car buying/dealing experience. I've bought only two vehicles in my life. Only one was from a dealer. Well, my 05 AC is just too small in the cab for me, so I'm thinking of getting a double cab longbed.
I found an 06 TRD Sport 4x4 with the tow package with 66K miles for $19900. When inquiring about price, they said they could do something in the $18000 range (I'm not sure about that price, yet, anyways...thoughts on that?).
They wouldn't budge on a "rough" estimate of $10k-13K for mine which is between 4K-7K below NADA on my truck. Crazy. I heard you always do worse on a trade in, but never realized just how bad. I have mine for sale privately now, but I can't go without a vehicle for very long if mine sells AFTER the one I'm looking at sells for, so the trade-in is more convenient, but I REFUSE to take a hit like that.
Sorry for the vent...anyone want to buy my truck (see the classifieds)?
